    I have a bunch of ash trees in my yard and was wondering if I could smoke with it? I haven't read any mention of ash on this site. I know it burns pretty hot because I use it in my fire pit. I know nothing about trees so I up until yesterday I had no idea what kind of trees I had. So once I found out I thought I should ask.

    I know a few smokers who use ash as their fuel. It has lotsa heat, but not alot of flavor.

    I've got a bit as well , haven't tried it yet , but was thinking it would at least make some good heat and a nice coal bed for the more flavorful woods. Just gotta get my saw fired up and make some short rounds to split for the firebox.

    Brian, the "Woods for Smoking" sticky has this on Ash-

    As mentioned by Capt Dan, use the wood for your heat source and add hickory, misquite, cherry, etc for your smoke flavor.
